Netflix Watch It Now: A Recommendation Thread

Recommended Posts

So recently the lady and I took the leap, closed the account with the local video store and made the switch to Netflix. The service is pretty much impeccable as far as availability, service fee's and shipping goes. However, the main enticement for me was the stream it now feature, but I have found that by my liberal estimation less than 25% of their catalog is available in this format. That said, it frustrates me when nothing I really want to watch at the moment is capable of streaming. Fire away.

 

Two recommendations:

Bad Boys (1983) 4 1/2 *

On the mean streets of Chicago, Mick O'Brien (Sean Penn) plays by the rules -- the wrong rules. The only saving grace in his life of crime is his relationship with his girlfriend (Ally Sheedy). But when a heist ends in tragedy, O'Brien lands in jail with his worst enemy (Esai Morales). Both are bent on vengeance ... and the score must be settled in blood.

 

Get Well Soon (2001) Avg. 4 1/2 *

After top-rated TV talk show host Bobby Bishop (Vincent Gallo) suffers a meltdown on the air, he leaves his show and heads to New York City to find his ex-girlfriend, Lily (Courteney Cox). But Lily isn't thrilled that Bobby gained fame and fortune without her, and she goes to great lengths to keep him at a distance. Director Justin McCarthy's independent romantic comedy co-stars Jeffrey Tambor and Tate Donovan as Lily's cross-dressing boyfriend.

i got one of these bad boys from a friend out of the country and its pretty sweet... its just too bad that finding a good movie on netflix's 'watch it now' is like picking peanuts out of a mound of shit... they added a new feature through mlb.com so you can watch any and every game for like 30 bucks. I'm praying they have that same feature for the nba when the season starts.

In anycase, EVERYTHING BY AKIRA KUROSAWA

 

This should be noted as nearly objective fact. That standing, "High and Low" was also great and "Red Beard" is a personal favorite.

Mifune is skeptical of all bullshit attempts at film making...

Hahaha, have you seen his documentary?

It's amazing. It tells of his Samurai background and his fathers strict ways.

Also the Making of Rashomon is a good one too in the Special Features of the DVD.

 

I an going to start subscribing back to NetFlicks. There are these boxes around town that allow you to rent movies for 1$, but their selection is by popular or new release titles.
